I Was Here

This is a lovely and inspiring song by Lady Antebellum (and Brice Williams? or is it Brice Williams’ sung by Lady Antebellum?).  You can also check it out on You Tube. Enjoy the lyrics and may you all leave behind something that says you were here :)

I Was Here

You will notice me
I’ll be leavin’ my mark, like initials carved in an old oak tree
you wait and see
maybe I’ll write like Twain wrote
maybe I’ll paint like Van Gough
cure the common cold
I don’t know but I’m ready to start coz I know in my heart

I wanna do something that matters
say something different
something that sets the whole world on its ear
I wanna do somethin’ better, with the time I’ve been given
and I wanna try to touch a few hearts in this life
and leave nothin’ less than something that says I was here

I will prove you wrong
If you think I’m all talk, you’re in for a shock
coz this streams too strong, and before too long
maybe I’ll compose symphonies
maybe I’ll fight for world peace
coz I know it’s my destiny to leave more than a trace of myself in this
place

I wanna do something that matters
say something different
something that sets the whole world on its ear
I wanna do somethin’ better, with the time I’ve been given
and I wanna try to touch a few hearts in this life
and leave nothin’ less than something that says I was here

And I know that I, I will do more than just pass through this life
I’ll leave nothin’ less than somethin’ that says I was here, I was here, I
was here, I was here

Wanna do somethin’ that matters
somethin’ that says I was here
wanna do somethin’ that matters
somethin’ that says I was here, I was here
